There have been many smart street lighting solutions IoT presented in recent months by manufacturers of networking and telecommunications with lighting companies to encourage energy savings with advanced control and connectivity for streetlights in smart city projects.
The recent celebration of important fairs systems integration, intelligent buildings and lighting have been the framework to introduce advanced intelligent lighting solutions for smart cities based on the Internet of Things (Internet of Things - IoT), a result of joint developments between telecom operators and networking and lighting.
The following examples of lighting solutions IoT highlight the importance of these developments not only improve energy efficiency in increasingly crowded cities, but as a business opportunity for these industries, as discussed below.
One of the first solutions in the Spanish market, as it advanced Digital AV MagazineIs Zero Site, a prototype urban lamppost connected Ericsson installed in Santander combining ICT with advanced features LED lighting art and provides macro coverage for 4G technology in 2600 Mhz.
Huawei Connected City Lighting Solution
Chinese multinational event presented during the recent CeBIT 2016 its first lighting solution with intelligent control IoT multilevel, according to data provided, will save 80% of energy in the municipal street lighting.
Connected City Lighting Solution de Huawei IoT connects lampposts and adopts a management system based on GIS that allows cities to improve control and performance of each. The solution offers managers municipal information on the status of each lamppost, every street and allows precise switch on and off control and individual brilliance, with lighting on demand.
The Climate Group According to data, there are approximately 304 million streetlights worldwide, and this figure will reach 352 million by 2025, with significant energy consumption and management costs and maintenance for municipalities.
In the solution of Huawei, each lamp is equipped with a power controller and shine. Unlike standard access methods in the industry, such as Wi-Fi, Connected City Lighting Solution adopts the 6LoWPAN technology, which has low power consumption, auto diagnostics to solve network problems, and a better interaction between lampposts and other intelligent devices such as sensors.
To improve control and performance of the streetlights, the solution integrates a series of policies intelligent lighting preset to automatically calculate the duration of lighting based on the length and local latitude, and dynamically adjust the lighting direction according to season, month and specific day.
También es posible ajustar de manera inteligente el brillo conectando sensores integrados con tráfico de terceros y de flujo de personas, o basados en el clima y otras condiciones medioambientales. Esta solución adopta un sistema de gestión basado en GIS, que muestra información completa sobre las farolas, incluyendo el número de farolas en cada calle, su actual estado, así como su posición y hora de instalación para gestionar miles de unidades ubicadas en diferentes viales.
Connected Lighting Solution City Huawei provides multilevel intelligent controls. The doors of agile IoT link and drivers streetlights are equipped with lightweight components to implement policies lighting and provide a decision-making mechanism located on two levels, with an open architecture in all its layers.
This provider of telecommunications and mobile Internet technology solutions presented the BluePillar solution integrated with streetlamp pillar load BlueBox ZTEbase station (BTS) IMACRO and 4G intelligent controller that allows the traditional pillar of lamps function as signal repeater 4G / 5G BTS or serve as a charging point for electric vehicles.
BluePillar not only solves the difficulty in position 4G networks, but also ensures building Wi-Fi network, environmental monitoring, security and management of data collection in the hotspots (climate, environment, transport, etc.), while its large outdoor LED screen can be used to display information and advertising.
Philips CityTouch y Vodafone M2M
Another recent global partnership to provide connectivity services and lighting the star IoT Philips Lighting and VodafoneWith the aim of providing cities worldwide deployment of street lighting systems connected to remote management to provide energy saving and efficient maintenance.
To this end, Philips CityTouch use the global M2M Vodafone network to connect the light points individually, so that each lamppost integrate a M2M SIM from this operator for municipalities to control and manage the system remotely all parameters (performance each point of light, luminosity, automatic configuration, fault detection, etc.).
This solution offers energy savings of 30-40%, according to data provided, and the cost of maintaining each lamppost, and its scalable architecture can also contain other IoT applications and services.
